Yahtzee Final Round, Initial Roll

So this is what it's come down to. The Sons have to hope for five sixes in nine rolls, and hope the Readers get none, and we win. At least that's what Jason said - I didn't check his math but I believe him.

Can someone calculate those odds?

Anyhow, roll your nine...

Come on six pack!

Anything but a 6!



(Trying some reverse psychology)

Steve Sax said...

Half-dozen!

Spanky said...

3+3

Half a Baker's dozen minus 0.5!

DAMMIT

Readers, what do you have? I'm too lazy to check myself.

As far as the Sons go...we basically need 5 sixes in or next 6 rolls.

Cake.

Eric Karros said...

Make that 5 sixes in 5 rolls. Give me a second to calculate those odds...

Ok. It's 1 in 7,776. Honestly, not as bad as I thought.

Eric Karros said...

...and those odds just increased to 1 in 1,296...

Eric Karros said...

...and those odds just dropped to 0 in 1,296.

I think we have:

2-4-2-5-3-1-3-1-1

MR. F said...

Never tell me the odds!

Steve Sax said...

wait a minute, so you're telling me there's a chance?

MR. F said...

Not Yahtzee related... but someone see that deadspin video about Brian Wilson's potential porn fetish? My brother forwarded it to me but I'm at work so I don't want to click on that link.

Nothing like a game-clinching 0-fer!

Steve Sax said...

@Mr F 10:01: Think of all the STDs festering in Wilson's beard.

MR. F said...

(shudders)

Jason said...

We're number 1! We're number 1!

Finally, a post where that is appropriate.

Jason said...

So the Sons finish with a 12 score for the 6s while the readers get bupkes.

Final score: 241 - 192 readers. The one Yahtzee rolled during the game provides the victory.

Looking at that Brian Wilson/Machine/Pat Knee Cancer Burrell thing on Deadspin just makes me hate them so much more

fucking San Francisco

roll

Eric Karros said...

I can't believe the Readers got shut out. Chances of a six shut-out in 9 rolls is about 1 in 5.

Sons got 2 sixes. We may have gotten our asses kicked overall, but won the last round!

Spanky said...

Fuck

Ahh! Much better
